Bio and Links
I began genealogical research in 1960. A lifelong researcher at this point. I have taught "How to Begin" classes and have infected numerous friends with the genealogy bug. My passion for documentation loves the info FindAGrave provides. It saves searching in person at some distant local when some 'kind soul' has recorded burials and shared it on FindAGrave!

Fred Rufener
I am researching Fred Rufener, who was married to my great grandmother, Mary (Minnie) Phillips.

Minnie Phillips was also married to Albert Eaton, and they had several children; and then she was married to my great-grandfather, James T. Williams, and they had two children, Clarence and Ralph.

At the time of their wedding, she had living with her the following children: her grown daughter from her first marriage, Lottie Rufener, two sons by her second marriage, Bird and Jud Eaton. She also was raising her second husband's (Frank Eaton's) three boys and two girls. Frank Eaton died years later in California.

I wonder if my Fred Rufener might also be the Fred Rufener you mention: "Fred Rufener is the brother of Anna E. Bennett (nee Rufener). He is my great-2xgrt uncle."

Hi Bev...

Just wanted to let you know that I've added the additional info for your 3rd Great Grandparents' memorials. What a nice find for you! If you'd like i'd be more than happy to transfer their memorials to you.

Let me know...

RE: Center Cem. Williams/Jensen
Thank you so much for the correction. Since you didn't give me grave #'s, please double check me that the corrections are right. If there is anything else, let me know. Thanks again.

David Gibson
It appears that you are descended from David Gibson, 1796-1875, who is buried in California Corners Cemetery in Branch Co., MI. Did you know that he served in the War of 1812? Our Michigan Society of U.S. Daughters of the War of 1812 is working on a project to locate the burial places of the veterans of that war. If you are descended from David Gibson, you would be eligible to join our society. If you would like more information about it, you could go to our website: Or, you could contact me at

P.S. I put a memorial tribute on his page on Find A Grave.
